This hotel doesn't offer many thrills but is within a ten minute walk from Bethesda Row. I stayed here 4 nights and was quite thrilled that they offerred free overnight parking (when available) and free breakfast. They also have a small pool on site and the staff - from the breakfast room to the front desk to the parking attendent... More

Hi, Well this is not a review since I just booked this hotel for August. I just have a quick question, the hotel looks perfect for us but can someone tell me how the pool is? While my youngest daughter will be attending the Youth Leader Conference, my oldest daughter and I will be sight seeing and relaxing, and we... More

This was my fourth time staying at this hotel. My reasons for returning was that I received sufficient services at the best price in the area. I would feel confident staying here again, because my experience each time seems to match the previous. I know that I can anticipate a clean room that meets my needs. Plus, they offer the... More

We found this hotel to be clean and reasonably convenient to downtown DC via Metro. It's advertised as only four blocks from the nearest station and that is true. However, they are four pretty long blocks. The lobby leaves a lot to be desired and I was assured by the manager that it's due for refurbishing. Fortunately, the rooms have... More

First the bad: The website said they had a gym on site, they do not. They don't even have one off-site. There is A gym nearby you can pay to go to, or use the public bike/jogging path about a 1/4 mile away. Parking is also rough, there is limited space at the hotel and extra nearby, but can be...

All the hotels in DC were more than $100 per night but just outside of DC in Bethesda MD we found this hotel online for $44 per night plus free breakfast. The room was tiny but big enough for me and my wife and a queen sized bed. A microwave is provided by the vending machines and our room had... More

I stayed here alone for three nights in early March of 2012. Free parking was limited but I was delighted to find a spot upon my arrival. I had no need to move the car until well after I checked out so this posed no problem for me. Check in was smooth, I was given a room on the second... More

I stayed there for a little less than a week and was pleased overall. The staff was most helpful, taking care of my incoming packages, calling the cab, etc. The room was clean, well furbished and in good condition. Comfortable bed with nice cushions. WiFi was perfect. Room was quiet and I think that was due to good sound isolation.... More
